Police in the UK are on the search for a thief who has been dubbed the "world's most casual robber".

A Manchester man, armed with a cup of coffee, casually asked a newsagent to fill up four bin bags full of cigarettes from behind the counter.

Though he disguised himself in a bandana and a hooded jacket, CCTV cameras picked up his face. The crime occurred on New Year's Day.

Greater Manchester Police said that the man was "clearly nonchalant" in his attitude to the raid.

One nearby shopkeeper told the Daily Mail: "We couldn't believe it when we heard what this guy was carrying when he went into the shop. Normally you hear of robbers carrying guns, knives and coshes - but never one carrying a cup of coffee.

"Obviously, it must have been terrifying for the shop assistant to be told to hand over the money, but some people round here have been joking as to whether the robber asked for milk and two sugars too."
